What a fabulous kayak and snorkel adventure. Scotty, our guide was so helpful, giving a thorough and much appreciated introduction to kayaking, and transitioning on and off the kayak. Obviously his local knowledge and personality contributed to our interpretation of the habitat. The turtle experience was exceptional, because he took the time to ensure we respected their space. Fortunately, the... More

We booked our Kelli'is tour fairly last-minute - early evening for a late morning kayak/snorkel tour the next day. Their staff was accommodating and emailed back to tell us our spot was booked, even though their reservation office was officially closed for the day. We arrived at Makena Landing and set off shortly with four kayaks plus our guide. He... More

Jeremiah was our kayak leader and he was great. Very knowledgeable about the local marine life (he brought up some safe starfish and urchins for our kids to examine) and Hawaii history. We were lucky to see 6 turtles and lots of beautiful tropical fish we had not seen before in prior snorkel trips. We plan on going again when... More

Scott was our kayak instructor. He was so patient and helpful to us. He led us out to a couple of great spots where we snorkled with beautiful fish and lots of turtles to our delight. If we were on a time frame we were unaware of it as we took our time and enjoyed every minute of it. This... More

Fun thing to do while visiting Hawaii. It was my first time kayaking and snorkelling. Despite windy weather at the time and sea sickness it was an experience to remember. There were plenty of turtles.

This is our first trip to Hawaii and our kayak/snorkeling tour was great! Our guide, Jeremiah, was very knowledgable and had our safety as his first concern. Our original spot was far too windy so he quickly made some calls to arrange another spot that would be much safer and enjoyable. He was patient with the group as there were... More

My wife and I were with a group and were lucky enough to have Jeremiah as our guide - he made the experience fun and we learned so much about the area. My wife's not a great swimmer (and a bit timid around water) we both appreciated his patience and ability to keep it very light but professional. Totally recommend... More

Jeremiah told us all we needed to know, made some fun jokes and gave us a wonderful experience diving among the reefs, fish and turtles.

We met our guide Tyler at Makena Harbor on a beautiful Maui morning at 7:30. He was very friendly and informative, explaining what we doing on the tour. Throughout the tour, he gave us lots of local information, as well as about the species we were viewing. We snorkeled in a bay that is too shallow for the tour boats... More
